Evgeny Tchebotarev began photography in 2002 and since then he has spent the entirety of his professional career dedicated to the betterment of visual creativity, focusing on photography and design.
In early 2004, before Facebook and photo-sharing sites, he created a community for photographers to meet, share photos and information. He named it 500px.
In July 2018, he joined Skylum Software as VP of Growth Asia, applying years of hands-on expertise of working with Asian companies to expand Skylum’s award-winning products to the Asian markets.
He is an active photographer and has been honoured to judge many world class photo contests, including the previous edition of Red Bull Illume.
"For me, photography is the ultimate experience. Especially action sport photography. The amount of work, precision, and accurate timing that goes into that resembled more a scientific lab experiment rather than an action sport photo shoot.“
